The funeral was symbolic. The JLA, The Outsiders, all the true loners and part-time heroes turned out at the event hosted by the JSA, all paying last respects to one of their own, fallen in the neverending battle. Barbara Gordon gave the Eulogy, standing on her own thanks to a pair of pants given to her by John Henry Irons. After the Funeral the heroes hung together giving support to each other at JSA headquarters. "She was like a little sister to me." This said by Superman while being scrutinized by his fiance Lana Lang. "I appreciated her attitude and professionalism" Batman agreed from a corner. " I'm gonna miss that body" gasped Major Disaster as he took an elbow in the ribs from Black Canary for looking down her dress she'd worn for the occasion. "Pig" Added Canary. The wake lasted more than two days as everyone who had a memory of her told interesting little stories. "Remember when we found out that that nasty attitude of hers a couple of years ago was from the diet soda she drank?" This From Booster Gold to BluE Beetle. "Heh,.. Yeah,.. she almost beat you unconcious a couple times in JLE becuase of it." Blue beetle replied. "I remember when we thought she was from Ancient Atlantis" said Aquaman. " After thinking for Years that she was from Krypton" added Superboy. When it all finally wound down, only the strongest were still there and they too took their leave to go back to their respective cities. Superman was taking a shortcut back to Metropolis from New York Via Bagledash, ( Monsoon relief, Standard stuff), his mind still on Kara but now in the bittersweet of coulda / woulda / shoulda of lost opertunities when he was smacked from the sky and into a mountainside. Being Superman, he wondered more on how than who so he scanned the area he'd forcebly vacated to find an extremly large machine floating where he'd been about to disperse the storm. It appreared to be a spaceship,... his eyes being what they were he could see the heat trail straight as an arrow in complete disregard of the surrounding storm going straight up from where it floated. As he rose back into the sky and watched, A hatch opened on the side and a blue red and white blur whipped out of the ship and took up his position in the center of the storm and started to spin counter to it. (Superfeat 101,.. Dispersing terrestrial storms, tornados and Waterpouts.) It moved toofast for even he to get a clear picture - but the image caused the man of Steel to pause in surprise. Except for the size it could've been,.............. Powergirl. The person they had just had a service for. As she finished and started to slow, Kal El slowly cruised up to float within 20 or 30 yards. The girl, (He could now see it was a girl, maybe 12 - 14 years old) finished her spin facing away from him, he noted that she'd done it with her eyes closed. (Probably in concentration?) He cleared his throat prepatory to saying "Hello, Nice job,... who are you?" It was enough to have her spin in place with her mouth open to say something which was immediately wiped from her mind on catching sight of him. "DADDY!!!!" Superman found himself tumbling back at least a mile or so before he could gain control of the the tumbling mass of himself and the girl who was wrapped around him and crying in obvious relief. She babbled and sobbed all over his costume. He let her cry, absently patting her back as he used his super senses to determine what she was. her scent was very familiar and she gave off a faint odor he'd only smelled on himself after strenous superheroing. But sight, hearing and touch verified that she was real, female, and almost as durable as he was. He shushed her to ask questions. The look of love was so strong in her eyes as she looked up at him that again he paused. This gave him time to feel and turn to face an approaching bow-wake of something moving at high speed. "Hello Kal" It was the Powergirl he remembered. The Powergirl that had just died saving the solar system, the Powergirl they had just had a service for.
